“These little parcels are made with seasoned ground meat sealed in egg roll wrappers; they are then deep fried. Serve with salsa and guacamole if desired, but plain they are a dream. This recipe was handed down from my grandfather to my mom, from her to me, and now I'm passing it on to you.”

Directions

  1. In a large, heavy saute pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add chopped garlic, onions, and bell pepper; saute until soft.
  2. Add meat; cook and stir until browned. Drain off excess fat. Stir in tomato sauce and cilantro. Simmer until cilantro wilts. Remove from heat, and cool until mixture can be handled.
  3. Wrap 2 to 3 tablespoons of meat in an egg roll wrapper to form a triangle. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
  4. Heat vegetable oil in a wok or deep fry pan to 360 degrees F (168 degrees C). Fry patties in hot oil until golden brown. When done, transfer to plates lined with paper towels to drain.

this recipe works best when it is not egg roll wrappers that are used. Do it the old fashioned way, with spanish ingredients, like goya wrappers that come frozen and they will come out much better. seal the edges with a fork, .. it also tastes good with cheese tucked inside, or for vegetarians cheese, beans or broccoli..

These are a big hit at our house. I usually roll these up eggroll fashion as I had problems with the wrappers tearing at first. Also makes them easy for the kids to eat. In addition to draining the ground beef well, be sure to have the oil hot enough when you start frying or they will soak up too much. [10/1/04] These are also really good using ground chicken instead of ground beef!
